for that and that shouldn't change. harry reid feels differently. and the president feels differently. >> the president is right to say this is an extreme measure and was used irresponsibly last year. just to clarify and tellyear. the viewers what you are talking about. the republicans in exchange for raising the debt limit said we'll do it but there have to be spending cuts to offset the amount of debt. >> what i don't like about the debt ceiling process is we have a process to create budget and there are congress and committees. things are supposed to go through both houses and get voatds on. i think this is going outside the democratic process. the republican numbers went down much more than barack obama's did last year. i think they have to be careful about what they are doing here. >> i think the reason simon doesn't like it is because it gives the republicans leverage to force the president to deal with the debt. the president has as much chance of succeeding as you have of getting john bolton to cry on your show. megyn: i think i can do it. a challenge? >> i bet you can. in the last 27 years, ev

. >> somehow we found ourselves listening to harry reid. >> yeah. >> on the senate floor. >> mm-hmm. >> comparing the republican party to the new york jets. >> what? >> it's not one of my favorite teams, but it's really, really fun to watch. and that's the new york jets. coach ryan, he's got a problem. he has three quarterbacks. sanchez. he's got tim tebow. he's got a guy like mcelroy. he can't decide who their quarterback is going to be. that's the same problem the republicans are having. romney's gone, but he's still in the background. we have mcconnell, and we have boehner. who is the quarterback, mr. president? who is the quarterback? >> richard haass, a quizical look on your face. >> normally when you play football, you don't decide the other team's quarterback. >> right. >> that's usually for the coach to decide. so why is harry reid worried about who's the quarterback on the other team, and why is he even using this metaphor to begin with? >> it's painful. stop it right now. >> this is why it's a good development. by the way, there's another interesting development with t

power structure? majority leader, harry reid. >> they can't decide what they're going to do. we have heard about the infighting going on with the house leadership, boehner is having trouble finding help from his leadership as to what they're to do. >> according to senator reid, the battle is between boehner and congressman kevin mccarthy, eric cantor, and one paul ryan. ho, ho, ho. let's get right to our panel. with me here in washington is msnbc political analyst david corn, and in new york msnbc political analyst professor michael eric dyson. david, can i start with you? the president began with, o come all ye faithful, and now we have speaker boehner singing in the bleak winter. how far does the president have to go to give boehner something that helps boehner go to his caucus and say let's just do our deal. >> you want someone to be singing "i'll be home for christmas." >> there you go. >> first, it's nice to see you in d.c. >> it's a great pleasure. >> we have this little bubble of optimism in the conventional media the past few days. although they're talking, they're not saying

want to start with this. senator harry reid used an interesting analogy on the floor to describe the current state of the republican party. listen to this first. >> he's got a problem. he has three quarter backs, sanchez, he's got tim tebow, a guy by the name of mcilroy. he can't describe who is going to be the quarterback. that's the same problem that the republicans are having. romney is there but he's in the background. who is the quarterback, mr. president. >> hogan, what do you think? who's the quarterback? >> what a great question. i think, look, inherently the democrats have the advantage with the bully pulpit of the presidency. we don't have that out there right now. there are people who can talk about republican governance and why it's better and why we should lean towards that but until you have that, it's tough to rise to the level of the gravitas of those in the white house. this whole notion that we're some discome bob lated party, we took it on the election and there will be scrambling around after a big loss like that. but we've got some voices out there and we'll

now that the senate under harry reid has become a paralyzed nightmare. there is not a lot of influence you can really wield there. there is not a lot of things you can get done the composition of the senate may very well change after the 2014 but for the time-being it has to be frustrating for somebody like demint. he can have lot more interesting and effective influence on the outside with heritage. jon: what about tim scott taking his place? he is probably the favorite at this point. a black conservative in the senate. >> right. jon: what would that do oar four balance of power? >> i don't think it is making a difference, in the sense a conservative replacing another conserve. part of the reason senate is paralyzed is the senator demint is the king of filibuster. >> wait a minute. democrats have a big majority. they have a majority period but they had huge filibuster-proof majority first two years. >> they had a filibuster-proof majority, 27 days the senate was in significance. rest of the time they didn't have 60 votes you need to get rid of the filibuster. jim demint is more danger

very, very hard to block many pieces of legislation that the democratic leader harry reid was trying to pass through the senate. and demint made a point of personally going to harry reid's office to tell him face-to-face that he decided to resign. i can tell you as an observer of the senate watching relationships deteriorate, this was surprising but a good surprise. >> leaving on a good note at least with the majority leader in the senate. dana, thanks very much. and i'm joined now by senator demint along with heritage foundation founding trustee, the current president, we see the outgoing president, ed feulner, thanks for coming in. we're going to talk a little about the state of the heritage foundation and the republican party. the senator's here, the newsmaker, you shocked all of us. why did you do this? >> wolf, after this last election it's apparent we need to do more as conservatives to convince americans that our ideas and policies are going to make their lives better. the heritage foundation is the premier think tank, research organization, the premier idea group for the cons

speaker john boehner and senate majority leader harry reid on the fiscal cliff standoff. "the new york times" reporting gop leaders are considering extending tax cuts for the fiscal class to avert the fiscal cliff but if that is the case republicans are staying very tight lipped about it. joining me is senator ben carden from maryland a member of the budget committee and the committee on finance. good to have you here and you have said one thing you want from these talks is to show the markets and to show leaders, that leaders have the situation under control there, in your estimation, how would you say that's going so far? >> well predictability is very important. i think the first step is exactly what leader reid said. if we can get predictability on the taxable income below $250,000, everyone knows that's under current rates and also give us the additional revenue we need on that income above $250,000, it shows us that we are moving towards a balanced way to deal with the fiscal cliff. it would be an incredible lift, i think, to confidence in the markets. >> so with raising revenue

the democrats. he wanted to prove that the democrats didn't have the votes for the legislation. harry reid called his bluff and objected to putting the bill up for a vote, but after discussing it with his democratic members he got the support he needed and had a change of heart. claire mccaskill was priding when mcconnell objected to voting on the bill. >> is there an objection to the original request? >> objection is heard. i got whiplash. >> very strange. >> dick durbin reacted to mcconnell's move moments later. >> so this may be a moment in senate history when a senator made a proposal and when given an opportunity for a vote, filibustered his own proposal. i think we have now reached a new spot in the history of the senate we have never seen before. >> let's turn to bernie sanders. i'm laughing at it too, senator. this just goes to show either winging it big time. they don't have a plan other than to get in the way. what's your response to what unfolded on the floor and what we can look forward to in the future? >> i think dick durbin was right. in a time of dysfunctionality, this prob

senate majority leader harry reid. both democrats wanted to make sure president obama will not freeze them out of fiscal cliff negotiations. far from frozen, some set of republicans appear to be warming to higher tax rates on households earning more than $250,000. if and only if that leads to benefit cuts in health care entitlements like medicare and medicaid. >> give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the right increase on the top 2%, and all of a sudden, the shift goes back to entitlements. >> but house republicans, the key to any fiscal cliff deals remains suspicious. >> the president wants the rates to go up, that doesn't solve the problem. we don't want to be back here in another year, in another ten years answering the same questions. >> reporter: the republican co-chairman of the deficit reduction commission said higher tax rates are inevitable. >> if anybody out there who's, quote, rich doesn't think their taxes go up, the drinks are on me. i'll cover it. >> reporter: mr. obama and house democrats are open to making wealthier taxpayers pay more in medicare

the point of it. special screening of "lincoln." the story broke yesterday, harry reid setting up a screening on the floor of the senate. we've reached out to everyone involved here. one of our sources has confirmed there is a special senate screening scheduled for december 19th we're also being told, carol, there's still some details being figured out and at this stage we don't know if it will actually happen inside the capitol building, but this is at least the third time lincoln is getting a special political screening. the president, remember that, he held a special screening at the white house with the entire cast and director steven spielberg and kevin mccartney held a special screening for gop menls. if they watch the movie once, perhaps twice, they'll be able to reach a compromise. >> here is a better idea. daniel day-lewis should do the whole lincoln get-up, go into congress, act as abe raham lincn and draw the two sides together. >> i think that may actually work. then we can have a lincoln 2. bad idea. >> thank you so much. >>> new orleans saints fans may hate him. roge

clashes with his own party's leadership. he will be missed by democratic senator harry reid calling demint a friend. >>> i have read his book. he's read my book. we are friends. we spent half hour within the past week talking about the senate. at this time, i didn't know that he was considering leaving. i'm not sure that he had made a decision at that time. i rather doubt it. but i've always liked the guy. and even though i disagreed with so much of what he's done, i appreciate that -- i personally believe he does this out of a sense of real belief. it's not political posturing for him as it is for a lot of time. i like jim demint. i wish him well. >> keep in mind, demint is leaving with four years left in his senate term. earlier he had said he would retire in 2017 but gave no previous indication he might quit now. >>> as concerns are rising over activity at syria's chemical weapons site a new round of diplomacy today. hillary clinton meets with russia's foreign minister, a long-time friend of syria's. so what happens next? i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. >>> when something bring

cuts in entitlement programs. it's not clear democrats would be on board. senator harry reid in the senate has said social security should not be part of this. so has nancy pelosi, the democratic leader in the house. host: does the cola change depending on where you live in the country? guest: it is across the board for everyone. it is a percentage. it depends on how big your benefits are every year. you cited average numbers of about $1,200 a month for a retired worker. a lot of people get more and some get less. the dollar amount for your increase would change depending on that, but the percentage increase is the same a matter where you live in the country. host: we are talking about social security and how would factors into the so called "fiscal cliff." if you would like to join the conversation, here are the numbers to call -- we will get to the calls in a moment. we will hear what they think about social security being on the table. do you get the sense we will talk about this a lot in the next couple weeks or will this discussion, a lot more next year? guest: it's not

with the republicans and harry reid in the senate. you're just not seeing it. >> you don't see enough of it. curiously, the markets -- investors are actually increasing their exposure which is kind of contrarian to your point. i do believe to julia's point, you'll see a receding or retreat in that attitude over the next several days and few week ifs we can't get ourselves closer. i remain optimistic. the president wants a legacy and his legacy depends on this. and two proposals have been put forth. they resemble each other in terms of the amount they've asked for. i give republicans credit. they understand revenue has to be part of the deal. the question remains whether it's marginal rates or limiting deductions. adults should be able to come together and get that deal done. >> what happens here in the short term and long term. the short-term thing's not going to be much of a solution. >> no, i don't think so. and mark halperin, you talk about these deals possibly being $2 trillion. we went $5 trillion in debt over the past four or five years. another $5 trillion in debt over the next four to five yea
